Relief for now

I've basically been stress free since Thursday. No immediate school work due, all that's left is studying and I don't need to crazy cram for anything. I know I should get started on some stuff for studying, but I just can't bring myself to do any work now, not after I spent the last 2 weeks being overwhelmed with papers.

I actually look forward to my Monday therapy sessions.

I actually also avoided an argument/fight on thursday with Justin, by attempting to do what I could remember Kristen telling me to try when I'm upset. I think I did about 70% right at least.

I feel so much better mentally and also physically since I'm not insanely stressed out. I can breathe now.

On Thursday, Justin and I are going to this popular ice cream place called Half Pint Creamery about an hour away. It's a lot of really unique different ice cream flavors and is supposed to be really good. which is probablyyyyy why we're willing to drive an hour away to try it. We invited Jess to come with us, and she doesn't have work so she said yes. I know Jess needs to get out and do fun stress free stuff, just like I need to. But I really hope she doesn't talk non stop about all her health problems going on. It's all she talks about anymore, and whenever she does, it just sounds like an excuse for all her other problems. Her biggest problem is that she just doesn't do anything to help herself. If she quit smoking and just changed her diet, I think a lot of her problems would go away or at least decrease. Justin and I just don't know what to say to her because she doesn't seem to listen.

And, Justin is going to help me make my grandma some lemon cookies on Friday if he isn't doing anything, and might just sleep over Thursday night instead of having to drive back down on Friday. (We live 30 minutes from each other)

At least I have some fun to look forward to. And Thursday is also the last day of classes for the semester.

          our oven burns things! it’s like the actual oven temp is different than what you put it on. i can never make cupcakes/muffins because those burn so easily, it’s a small window of time between “done” and “burnt”

            Yes, it goes from done to burnt so quick. Once I tried making cinnamon rolls and they were coming out so perfect and it gives a time like 12-17 mins, so it needed a few more than 12 and it was still less than the time like 2 mins later and they got burnt

              it’s so hard to get a whole tray of cookies to come out perfect. the ones on the edges always get over browned while the middle ones don’t always get completely done. even though we rotate the trays to try to get them to bake evenly

    Yup, somehow a few always come out burned but raw at the same time. It’s just not the thing I can do really good at lol, I’ll leave that up to you and the chef’s =P

        I like to bake but I need someone there because the kitchen tends to burn things and make me look bad :/ Cooking I can only cook breakfast things, and I’ve tried rice which I need way more practice
